AUGUST 9, 1969
…Quentin Tarantino’s version of the Sharon Tate murders was what really happened instead of the worst bloodshed in Hollywood history.
In the movie, the devil-cult butchers mistakingly went to the house next door occupied by a faded TV action hero and his stunt double who killed the hippies real good.
Poignant scene of what could have been (tap bottom right for full screen).
‘The Sixties ended abruptly on August 9, 1969, when word of the murders on Cielo Drive traveled like a brush fire through the community.’ — Joan Didion
